Paul and Jean Hoshiko Memorial Family Scholarship
Jenna White is the daughter of Dianna and Josh White of Keenesburg. She is a 9-year member of the Prospectors 4-H Club and is involved in the swine project. She is a Senior at Wiggins High School and was involved in FFA, FBLA, varsity volleyball and fellow Christian Athletes.
Jenna plans to attend the University of Texas-Tyler and is working toward becoming a nursing and health care social worker. A career goal of hers is to be able to get practice in her field of study to ensure she is the best she can be when she starts.
Jenna’s first year of showing swine was in 2012. It was all very new, and she felt she was going in blind but couldn’t wait for the journey to begin. Over the next several years Jenna learned several life lessons and things about the Ag community. Working with siblings can be difficult and can also be rewarding. Some of the leadership skills she gained were competitive excellence, power of the unit and being problem-solution focused. She learned that it is more than ok to ask for help if needed.
4-H over the years has developed her into the person she is today. By being able to represent our community in royalty and competing with and against friends since elementary school is something she won’t take advantage of ever. Jenna wouldn’t know the things she does if it weren’t for being a part of a community who are kind, smart and patient.
Jenna is the recipient of the Paul and Jean Hoshiko Family Memorial 4-H Scholarship.
